The Bias Inside Us Exhibition Event: Building Inclusive Worlds
Fantasy and science fiction can build whole worlds for us to explore. How do we build these worlds with everyone in mind? Together, we'll look at examples of inclusive worldbuilding in pop culture (Nimona, Arcane, She-Ra, among others) and brainstorm how to create our own worlds that share the complex natures of our own.
